Just presenting some ideas. If it's not a fit, no worries:)

WillaWay this is some of the best playing I have heard on KOMPOZ. Your vibrato on this is absolutely beautiful and your dynamics are great. The one be thing I would say is back the gain off literally by 1 and it would sing even more. It is a strat right? If you pull the gain back a tiny bit then it with open up the mids and you will hear the hollow voice that only strats can get. We have a tendency to go for full and fat but honestly with a strat letting it sound brittle and hollow especially in this context will sound INSANELY cool. It issomething which I can?t do because I skipped the blues thing but your so close to that sound here!

Hey, man, I'm glad you dig it but the solo is played by Peter Tiehuis. It's just some bits I had laying in my library that I arranged. I also added a preamp, a delay and some eq to the dry seps make it shine. I thought it might help demonstrate my vision for the arrangement, and add a little something to highlight the drums I added. I think you could do a much better solo. I'm working on mimicking the tone myself, I'm getting pretty close, but it's proving sorta difficult on the guitars I own. I'm debating getting another strat. Sorry to disappoint but I always try to bring what I think best suits the project:)

I quote you, I think you could do a much better solo.... Dude no way that vibrato...I could NEVER follow that... Whoever played this solo is by far the best guitar player I have heard on KOMPOZ. I can hear like at least 20 years prob more of life experiences in the vibrato alone...

WillaWay   commented 1mo+22dy ago


Dude, you are definitely this good. Peter Tiehuis is a session guitarist, not a member here. He is an amazing musician but so are you. Only speaking from what I heard from you. This is like my "unicorn tone," I've been chasing it for years. I thought it'd be a perfect fit for this project. P.S. If it's decided to keep the solo, I'd like everyone to know that I own full rights to the solo, so no worries about copyright issues. I'd like to hear your take on the solo though, Timothy. I might give it a go too.

I don?t really understand. Did you buy a sample pack of his licks or something? Surely anyone who buys them would have copyright so those phrases could turn up on 1000 other pieces of music. Kinda like the Wilhelm Scream turning up in pretty much every movie.

heres a thought https://www.kompoz.com/music/community/a/1171999#comment1387898 btw... cool lead..)

WillaWay   commented 1mo+21dy ago


Yeah, I bought a library. No different than me or anyone else playing the same phrases/licks I've heard a thousand times over throughout the history of music. I mean if it's an issue I'll be glad to submit a lead that I will record from scratch. And to be honest, if I could produce something as I iconic as the Wilhelm Scream, I'd be honored, lol.

It?s kinda like turning up to a local art gallery with a Francisco Goya painting and saying. Ok I am just gonna sit this here and if anyone else wants to show off their works then go ahead. I can see why many people would feel discouraged. As for me, I don?t feel discouraged however It made me feel really sad when I found out that it wasn?t you playing. Because the phrasing was so personal and had so much depth that it created so many questions I wanted to ask. Where is that vibrato coming from? Did you have a Coltrane phrase? Are you backing off the tone on the bridge pickup? What pickups are they? I felt sad because all of those questions are going to go unanswered?Also because I guess you can?t recreate this right? The ability to create something beautiful seems lost if you can recreate it.

yea me to ..sad face here..( me too i felt that way also.. bottom line .. its fake i guess im a fool..) im not as astute tho i actually thought it was him playin

WillaWay   commented 1mo+21dy ago


I see where you're coming from. I gotta say though, can I play this exactly as it was performed? No. Many factors are involved. Experience, money, natural ability. Not to say I don't have any of those things but they are factors nonetheless. On the other hand, I do feel what I arranged was a good fit and worthy to be part of such an already incredible composition. I never thought there'd be so much backlash because of what I've presented. my apologies. P.S. This apology is not directed at you, smg179 See what I did there, steve? I edited my comment. I'm learning:)

Hey, smg179, here's a thought too- Unless you unblock me, it'd be nice if you stop directing comments towards me:)

smg179   commented 1mo+21dy ago


its meant for Tim not willa srry bout that When this happens it discourages uploads That are people legitimately trying to write and play with You folks.. it needs to be told upfront i was going to upload A lead but alas i can’t compete mateys my own insecurities ..? yea me playin up against a 35 year orchestral classically taught genius.. dont ya agree? seems more like your insecurities at least i actually play the instrument..or try to.. please direct me to 1 thing you actually played so i/we can listen il even endorse ya if you do..

WillaWay   commented 1mo+21dy ago


smg179, if it discourages you from uploading, that's your own insecurity. I don't think I should be blamed for that. To add to that, my submission hasn't been accepted...... I was honest about the solo, I could have easily lied and claimed that I played it and took the credit, but I'm not that type of person.

WillaWay   commented 1mo+21dy ago


I'm legitimately trying to write/work with folks too.

WillaWay   commented 1mo+21dy ago


smg179 I'll say this here since you can't make up you mind whether to block me or not I would never try to take credit for someone else's work. I have and do put in countless hours of playing too and I'm really getting tired of you claiming otherwise. I'm also at my limit on the name-calling.

WillaWay you don?t have to prove yourself to anyone. Music is a journey of self-discovery and starts and ends with the self. Comments, likes, Grammys are tokenistic at best. Do you think that maybe you are going down the route of the music producer? More so than a recording artist? I don?t think there is anything wrong with that if so.

comment.user.userName PLUS

WillaWay   commented 1mo+21dy ago


I am into production heavily lately. And from the knowledge I've acquired, the producer always does what's best for the project being worked on, even if that means using someone else's solo over the one I recorded, if it's a better fit.

Treid   commented 1mo+21dy ago


Yeah, I understand what your saying. However let me add this. A cheesecake is delicious we all agree with that. A cheese cake at the end of a traditional Japanese meal is still gonna be delicious? I would love that.. but can you see how that would offend some people?

comment.user.userName PLUS

WillaWay   commented 1mo+21dy ago


Yeah, and I have acknowledged such and try to look at things from all perspectives. Good analogy.

Treid   commented 1mo+21dy ago


Hahaha I just love cheesecake and think that any cuisine would benefit from having cheesecake as its desert. Much to the dismay of my chef friends.

comment.user.userName PLUS

WillaWay   commented 1mo+21dy ago


I agree I love cheesecake too. That and no-bake cookies are about the only sweets I actually eat. I've recently thought about combining the two, by repacing the graham cracker crust with a no-bake cookie crust.

Willa: Off subject and I apologize for such but I just couldn't help but to question. The song "Tomorrow may never come" one of the best blues songs I've heard on Kompoz and very professionally done. The vocalist hits it out the ball park. Do you know if it was released and/or promoted in any way? If not, something should be done with it for it would be a sin not to share it with the worlds blues community. I would be interested in getting it out there to see what reaction there is. Thanks, BZ

"well thats a far fetch from what youve presented lately il give ya that but honestly i dont trust ya whatsoever so save the "looky what i can do" routine its old news but im a man of integrity my word is my word il endorse ya just ta get ya to shhhhhh.already..." You're full of it. I really could care less if you trust me or not. I don't need to impress you or seek your approval. Take the endorsement back, please. I don't want any association with you.

"yea yer the victim arent ya all victimy lol just callin it as i see it your uploads arent your playin and id like to know that sort of thing ahead of time now i know..and i feel that way also thats why yer blocked and have been since your first lie last year.."

"yea my"b doesnt work... id be defensive and attacking too if i was busted out on this sort of thing.. youll be ok but really be honest tell us your uploading loops dont hide that sort of thing we are all trying to koolaborate and when ya do that well it ruins the oppty for the rest of us thats all *nice know all ya'all *peace" How the hell was I "busted" I've been talking about using loops openly for quite a while, I've even made several threads about it. I think you just don't like me. Before this whole loops thing, you still talked smack. It's okay though, you don't need to like me and I don't need you to like me. Take care:)

'dont feel special theres a crapload here that i dont like.. theyre mostly all who misrepresent themselves or their work.. ..at least im honest i may not be great or good but its me.100% . not me using some watered down version of someone else trying .to sound better than i actually am sheeze.. fake news.. so whatevs.. lol..) p.s i dont care about you reporting me i dont care..live with yerself" You obviously can't step outside your bubble. I'm done with the conversation. And as far as reporting you, yeah, never have and not about to start. I'm bigger than that:)

Cheesecake Factory is great! I just noticed that smg closed his account. It was never my intention to play a role in that if I did.

Hey Willaway, love the track and wondered if you'd mind me adding an orchestral arrangement to sit with it? I'm new on here but my work in film production has meant i've had a few things used on commercials. I'd love to add a really epic backdrop to this track if you fancy it? I'm not precious in any way so if you like it great, if not no issue.

Hi David, Firstly welcome! This Collab is actually mine but I started it based around a set of lyrics which I have now moved to a different collaboration. I'm presently involved in writing a new set of lyrics (I have submitted what I've come up with so far as a work in progress) As a singer and some-time lyricist I generally start the collaboration and work on the basis that someone will take the words I upload and start their own version of the song as a "Spin -off". I do this because my musical talent/knowledge and in particular my mixing skills are VERY poor. On this occasion Tim dropped some lovely guitar and keys seps on to the project and Jim supplied a silky smooth bass sep so it's just rumbled along from there. If this project is going to blossom then really I'll be looking to either appoint one of these super talented people as the "Manager" or put a shout out for an engineer to come on board. Please feel free to submit your ideas - that's what we're all here for after all! Best wishes Dave (DTSUK)

Hey Willa: Re Evolution submission. This song is unbelievable. Timeless. Really great. Who does the leads in the second half of the song? Thanks, BZ
